Tonight at 8PM the National Geographic Channel is airing a one-hour documentary called “How It Was: Death at Kent State” talking about the May 4, 1970 incident that resulted in the National Guard killing 4 people and injuring 9 others at Kent State University. If 8PM doesn’t work for you, it is also airing at 11PM.

My parents were students at Ohio State at the time, and my father has told me that the incident made things really hairy at Ohio State too. Hopefully this show will be an interesting and comprehensive look back at the situation.

  • Newly released audio tells a different view of events. To sum it up, they clearly planned to shoot.

    Old Rhodes dispatched the Guard more times than all other states Governors combined. He was ordered/ black mailed (for his bookey biz) by J Edgar Hoover to deploy them. Google it!
